Button and Scene navigation problem

Hi guys,

I have a weird problem. I was developing a movie which as 20 scenes. After a while I decided to add another scene for another section of the movie and a button so that a user can jump from any scene to this specific scene (scene 21). And it won't work. I used the same code as for all the other button to get to other scenes and they work fine except for this one. I tryied rebuilding the button and altering the code but it still won't work. Since I have the button in a movie clip I use this code:

on (release) {
_root.gotoAndPlay("Scene 21", 1);
}

Please help, I really appreciate it.

It didn't work.  This stuff is really weird.  I tried many different things, I tried to look for errors or something.  You see, I created this scene later after all movie was basically complete and all buttons were connected to other scenes.  Now this button won't work with this scene, and no other button would.  Although, when I have this button outside of the movie clip, it works.  When it's inside any movie clip - it doesn't work.  I don't get it? Can you see the problem? Thanks.

Thanks....I got it! After spending two days figuring this out, I put frame label instead of number and it worked!!
that's weird I think...

it always helps to use the following format when trying to link/play a MC or Scene:


on (release) {
_root.MOVIECLIPNAME.gotoAndPlay("Scene 21", "framelabel");
}

or

on (release) {
gotoAndPlay("Scene 21", "framelabel");
}

use frame labels when ever possible, and I would also recommend that you name your scenes something specific.... that will help you or others know what the scene contains and makes it easier to maintain...
